Journalist claims there is a contrasting detail in Jose Mourinho’s contract

Jose Mourinho’s future at Tottenham Hotspur has been the subject of intense speculation over the past week.

Tottenham were hoping to close the gap on the top four last weekend when they faced Arsenal in the North London derby but failed to impose themselves on the match which saw them suffer a 2-1 defeat to their bitter rivals.

Supporters would have been hoping for their side to make up for the result by navigating their way into the last eight of the Europa League, only to put in another diabolical display which saw Dinamo Zagreb take advantage and win the tie 3-2 on aggregate.

Mourinho is under contract at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium until the summer of 2023 which sees the Portuguese earn a staggering £15million a year, double what his predecessor Mauricio Pochettino was paid (Daily Mail).

It has previously been reported that there was no break clause in the contract which Mourinho agreed with Daniel Levy (The Athletic).

Football journalist Duncan Castles has claimed however that there is no such clause in the 58-year-old’s agreement, which could allow the Spurs hierarchy to dismiss him for a lower amount.

Castles told the Transfer Window Podcast: “Contrary to what has been reported that there is no break clause in his contract. I’m told that there is a break clause in his contract, so the cost to dismiss him, should Levy choose to go down that route is less than the remaining value on his contract,”
